In 2020, Utah DOPL introduced an Expedited Licensure rule R156-55b-302c. This rule allows for apprentices to “test out” of various semesters of school.
Here are the guidelines and policies for IEC Education of Utah
- Apprentices who have a Utah apprentice license are eligible to take each test one time only. (No re-takes) In order to take a test, you must have passed the previous semester class or test.
Tests will be administered by appointment only. The test is a written, hand-scored test. Results will be available within 24 hours.
One-time $50 fee to begin the testing process, you are eligible to continue testing until you fail. (1A, 1B , 2A, etc.) there is a two-month window to complete testing.
- The one time $50 fee (less credit card fees) is refundable if notice is given within 2 business days of your scheduled test date. Failure to do so will result in no refund, to cancel or reschedule please email email@example.com
- $250 additional fee if the student passes the test. This is the fee for the credit to be maintained in our computer report-card system. This fee is applicable per semester. (example: if you pass 2A and 2B there is a $500 fee to maintain the transcript)
